Nothing goes to waste! It’s what people usually say when it comes to being frugal but it’s also not a bad philosophy when it comes to getting the most out of your apartment. After all, you’ve done the apartment hunting, you signed the lease, you probably hassled your friends and family to help you move your belongings, and now it is time to ensure you are getting everything out of your apartment, and that includes utilizing your balcony space. Below are 5 ways to make your balcony space more enjoyable.

Declutter Your Balcony

Cluttered balconies are no fun at all. Small, cluttered balcony areas might as well serve as a storage space. But there’s a way to ensure your balcony doesn’t just serve as just another place to put your things that are in the way. In fact, you can free up more legroom with a smaller table, ideal for placing summer cocktails and small plates to share! Trust us. Once you’ve freed up more space on your balcony and added some furniture, you’ll be chomping at the bit to invite friends over to see it for themselves.

Add Decor

There’s something about greenery that just makes a space more inviting. Adding small, leafy plants (like Philodendron and Boston Ferns) to your balcony would create the ideal, lush summer lounging area in your home. Or, you could opt for a few lavender or honey suckle plants for built-in fragrances which are proven to be stimulating. For an additional touch, use brightly colored pots to add a splash of fun to your outdoor décor.

Pillow Talk

Along with adding some patio furniture to declutter your balcony, using pillows offers another avenue for decorating the balcony space. Combined with other touches of color, throw pillows will accentuate any other colors already existing on the patio.

Use an Area Rug

Private Patio with Each Apartment

There’s a way to make your balcony even homier, aside from adding decor and some furniture. There’s no better way to complement decor than by adding a small carpet. In fact, any carpet would add a nice, comforting touch to the balcony. It will also invite shoeless treks out to the lounging space which is perfect for summer nights.

A Small Bookshelf or Bench With Storage Inside Goes a Long Way

Having more options of activities to do while on your patio will encourage more use of the space. Books, magazines, and speakers give an authentic opportunity to take your favorite indoor hobbies into a lush new escape. Small storage options like shelves also offer another opportunity for housing other little nicknacks and decorations without cramping the area!

You’ll see your patio seamlessly become comparable to another room in your apartment! The possibilities are endless once you utilize these few methods to get you started! Enjoy your summer and your new escape built into your apartment!
